Four abas ERP tips that’ll help you take the gold

Win with ERP

In today’s competitive market, it’s important to keep up with the latest business trends to ensure the success of your business. But sometimes ideas are flourishing faster than we can keep up with and measuring higher than your competitors is difficult. So how do you slip past the competition into first place? The following tips about using abas ERP could help you bring your business past any obstacles, giving you the competitive edge you need to take the gold:

1. Gather Feedback from End Users

Get feedback from end users to make sure abas is making their daily tasks easier

During implementation many end users are presented with the software and trained, but are not necessarily brought into the software setup and customization process.

Get feedback from end users to make sure abas is making their daily tasks easier, and figure out where there is room for improvement. Feedback can sometimes be verbal or vague, so providing a dedicated thread via e-mail or your company’s intranet for feedback where users can upload ideas and screen shots will enable everyone to see each other’s questions and learn how to better use the software.

2. Consistently Check Your Numbers.

abas is fully integrated with all of the components that allow your company to run smoothly. Many actions taken by end users include generating financial entries into the system. It’s important to make sure the financial entries that are accumulating make sense. If not, check if there is an issue with the data input or if there is a processing issue.

Creating folders in your user menu for weekly and monthly reports will help you stay organized and efficient. You can also set up predefined parameters that call the Infosystem for the last 7 days of the month. Furthermore, dedicating half an hour on a Monday morning or Friday afternoon to review your finances could prevent hours of trying to correct issues that could arise if you aren’t consistently checking your numbers.

3. Re-evaluate your processes once or twice a year, in and outside of abas.

Is what we’re doing capturing the data we need to make effective business decisions?

Identify where discrepancies may have occurred over the months and look into the processes to validate that they make sense and are producing the expected results.

For the companies that never have discrepancies, identify a pricey or time-consuming part of the process where you could further improve cost savings and efficiency. Gather a group of end users from all parts of the organization and take two days to go through an order-to-cash simulation. This will open a dialogue for questions: Why are we doing it this way? Can this be simplified? Is what we’re doing capturing the data we need to make effective business decisions?

4. Optimization

Once live, an ERP system is still growing. The system should evolve as your business evolves. This doesn’t mean more complex processes and customizations, but rather taking a look at how processes can be made more efficient, simpler, and most importantly, cost effective.

Take advantage of familiarizing your organization with components of the system that were not explored during implementation but could provide value, including fixed assets, cost accounting, shipping planning, etc. Upgrades are also a great time to re-evaluate processes and look for optimizations.

  • Take the time to revisit customizations. Are they necessary and as relevant as they were intended to be in the past year? While scraping a customization that you paid for during implementation may make some people cringe, if it isn’t adding value to your business and is costing you unnecessary time and money, it’s time to let it go.
  • Take a look into the new features an upgrade has to offer. Additional features may take time to understand and implement, but if it could benefit the organization in the long run then the time spent on the front end will be well worth it.
